Funny: Evil Dead

The Evil Dead:

  • Ash making Linda think he is sleeping, while she is trying to see what's in a box he was holding. She catches on with the both of them having a good life. Doubles as a Heartwarming Moment between the two since it's her neckline.
  • Ash is trying to listen to the recording, while the others play with cards:
    Linda: Hey, Ash, I guessed the card right!
    Ash: Yeah, truly amazing.
  • Some of what Deadite!Cheryl says can be pretty funny if you've got that sense of humor.
  • Ash tempting fate when they cross the bridge for the first time.
    Ash: Don't let the noise fool you girls, this thing is solid as a rock. -The bridge breaks.-

Evil Dead II:

  • Ash getting beaten up by his own hand.
  • The flying eyeball gag. According to the commentary, a group of teens had to run out of a screening of the film because they were laughing so hard.
  • Believing Ash is still possessed, Annie starts swinging an axe at him, but Ash is apparently able to talk her down and convince her that he's finally himself again. And then she takes yet another swing at him.
  • "That's right! Who's laughing now? WHO'S LAUGHING NOW?!"
  • Henrietta proves that Evil Is Hammy with nearly every line she says:
    "Someone's in my fruit cellar! Someone with a fresh soooouuuuul!"
  • After Ash decapitates Henreitta's mutated form, she still isn't quite done yet, leading to the following exchange:
    Henreitta: Hey! I'll swallow your soul! I'll swallow your- (Ash steps on her head)
    Ash: Swallow this. (boom)
  • If not regarded as Nightmare Fuel, the scene with the entire cabin laughing at Ash, especially when he mimics the movement of a laughing lamp.

Army of Darkness:

  • Oh so many....
  • Ash's trope-naming This Is My Boomstick scene.
    • And just before that, Ash tricking Lord Arthur with the old "your shoelace is untied" line.
  • The little Ashes messing around with big Ash. Topped off with Bruce Campbell singing "London Bridge is Falling Down" while stomping after one of them... until the one he's about to crunch uses a nail as a spear.
  • Shelia bitch-slapping Ash after trying (unsuccessfully) to make nice with him.
  • "Little goodie two-shoes, little goodie two-shoes...."
  • The flying Necronomicon attacking Ash.
  • The skeleton arms beating up Ash in the graveyard a la The Three Stooges.
  • The skeleton army's approach...with bony flutes, drums, and bagpipes.
  • While laughing at their initial success against the Deadites, Ash gives Arthur a hearty clap on the back, which causes him to immediately stop laughing and give Ash the stink eye.
  • Then there's Ash thinking he's killed his evil twin, only for it to come back as a full skeleton.
  • Every time Ash uses his powers of Instant Seduction. "Gimme some sugar, baby!"
  • The "sword-boy" gag. All the funnier for coming from Lord Arthur.
  • In the S-Mart ending:
    Deadite: I'll swallow your soul!
    Ash: Come get some.

Evil Dead the Musical:

  • Candarian Demon Moose.
    • Ash shooting the Candarian Demon Moose.
      • Ash really had enough of that Moose prior too.
  • Ash's Big "NO!" - three times in a row.
  • Ed comes to believe he isn't just a Bit-Part Demon, as Ash casually walks off to the side. Just as Ed is about to break into a larger song and dance, Ash shoots him with his shotgun.
  • "What the fuck was that?!"
  • Annie, Ed and Jake walk in on Ash cutting up Linda's head with the chainsaw.
    Ash: This is Not What It Looks Like.
  • Annie's constant Rapid Fire Interrupting of Ed, even when he transforms.
    Ed: Look who's—!
    Annie: Evil now!
    Ed: FUCK!
  • After telling everyone at S-Mart what happened at the cabin, Ash remarks that he was also sent back in time to medieval times.

Evil Dead: Remake:

  • The sheer amount of punishment Eric takes as the movie goes on that you think He must have died this time only to see him a few minutes later still alive and walking around.
  • "I just don't want to become the devil's bitch!"
  • Ash's cameo at the very end of the credits is amusing.
  • The warnings on the book written in blood in english. Especially "Chop the motherfucker."
